Former Flyer Mike Knuble has run into some hard times down in Washington, getting a healthy scratch on numerous occasions this season by new Capitals coach Dale Hunter. Turns out, Knuble fans are not happy with this decision and a fangroup known as Knuble's Knights wanted to make their opinions heard.

Former Flyer Mike Knuble has run into some hard times down in Washington, getting a healthy scratch on numerous occasions this season by new Capitals coach Dale Hunter. Turns out, Knuble fans are not happy with this decision and a fangroup known as Knuble’s Knights wanted to make their opinions heard.

From the Post:

The contest against the Hurricanes marks the eighth time in the past 13
contests that the veteran winger has sat out, and two of his most ardent
supporters, who call themselves Knuble’s Knights, brought signs to Verizon Center. One read “Free Knuble”. The other was a reference to Coach Dale Hunter that read “Scratch Hunter”.

Apparently these fans were asked to take down their signs by the Verizon Center staff who heard from a couple of Caps players who were not down with the Hunter hate.

I think we can safely say that we’re in support of the enemy fans down in DC in their efforts to scratch (or maim) Dale Hunter.
